Fireworks Safety Tips: Keeping Families Safe on Canada Day and 4th of July

With Canada Day and the 4th of July around the corner, the majority of North America will be celebrating during the whole first week of July! That means fun family picnics, delicious food and, of course, fireworks! While fireworks are beautiful and fun to look at, they can also be incredibly dangerous if they’re not used correctly. Keep the entire family safe with these fireworks safety tips. Believe me, the emergency room is the last place you want to spend your holiday! Especially since there are going to be hundreds of people who don’t follow even the most basic fireworks safety tips and end up with serious injuries!

Keep your whole family safe with these fireworks safety tips

Even if you follow all the fireworks safety tips to the letter, accidents can still happen. If your child, or anyone else for that matter, is injured by fireworks, seek immediate medical attention. When it comes to eye injuries caused by fireworks, the best thing to do is make sure the area isn’t touched in any way at all. No rubbing, no flushing, no ointment. For most people, your first reaction is to flush with water, and this can actually cause more damage to the eye. Kids Health by Nemours recommends cutting the bottom off of a plastic cup and placing it around the eye to protect it.

Fireworks are a major part of both Canada Day and 4th of July traditions. When left to the professionals, they can be incredibly beautiful and awe-inspiring.  However, no amount of beauty and awe is worth risking lives. Use common sense when using fireworks. Really, all of the fireworks safety tips come down to that one thing: common sense. If it doesn’t seem like a good idea, it’s not.

What are your feelings on fireworks safety? Do you set off fireworks at home or go to a professional show?
